Chicago, IL — While the boring rivalry between the NHL & NHLPA is being waged in NY and Toronto a much more interesting rivalry is heating up on Chicago’s ice. A cross town classic of a chilly sort like revenge being served cold it is not as intense yet as the Chicago Blackhawks vs the Vancouver Canucks but it is early in the AHL season and there is plenty of time for a healthy disdain and dislike to grow.
The AHL is now filled with the youth of the NHL but old rivalries will be renewed in games this season between the Rockford Ice Hogs who are the Chicago Blackhawks farm team and the Chicago Wolves who are the Vancouver Canucks farm team. There are plenty of players on both sides that played in the NHL and are fully aware of the dislike these two clubs have for each other.
